God is good, all the time.

I'm less than thrilled with the outcome of our election yesterday. It didn't go my way!! While I'm tempted to whine and complain about it, I think back to things in life that didn't go my way...and yet God used them to grow me.....why should this be any different? God is still on the throne! He's still God....just because our nation is changing doesn't mean He is!
God is good, all the time! Not just when things go our way, not just when we're in the good times....
This morning I have music playing (trying to keep my perspective right...this helps, trust me!) and I heard this song....it's a favorite of mine. My joy, my future, my hope...rest in God and God alone!

I could not do without Thee
O Savior of the lost,
Whose precious blood redeemed me
At such tremendous cost.

Thy righteousness, thy pardon
Thy precious blood, must be
My only hope and comfort,
My glory and my plea.

I could not do without Thee,
I cannot stand alone,
I have no strength or goodness,
No wisdom of my own;
But Thou, beloved Savior,
Art all in all to me,
And weakness will be power
If leaning hard on Thee.

I could not do without Thee,
O Jesus, Savior dear;
E’en when my eyes are holden,
I know that Thou art near.
How dreary and how lonely
This changeful life would be,
Without the sweet communion,
The secret rest with Thee!

I could not do without Thee,
For years are fleeting fast,
And soon in solemn oneness
The river must be passed;
But Thou wilt never leave me,
And though the waves roll high,
I know Thou wilt be near me,
And whisper, “It is I.”
